Instructor Kris Straukas
What is Amigurumi? Amigurumi is a Japanese term that refers to the beautiful and artful technique of crocheting stuffed animals, dolls and other 3D objects.
This workshop is for the advanced beginner that is familiar with basic Amigurumi and crochet stitches; the magic ring, single crochet stitch, slip stitch, the increase stitch and invisible decrease stitch. Kris will teach you how to crochet ‘in the round” using the Magic Ring and a series of increase and decrease stitches to create Patrick the Giraffe! Workshop will include pattern, with detailed instructions and pictures. If you are unable to finish your giraffe during the workshop, there will be an opportunity to attend a free open studio session for any additional help needed. Workshop will be socially distanced and CDC guidelines will be followed.
If you need to learn the basic Amigurumi stitches, Kris is holding a beginner workshop where you will learn how to make an egg, sphere or ice cream cone.
